Tech and democracy: towards a responsible globalization

Notwithstanding the improvements technology has brought to industrialized societies in the last century, it has also originated unprecedented challenges to humanity. Access to technology remains largely unequal on a global scale, accentuating disparity among countries. On the other hand, wealthy nations are now confronted with issues related to their extreme dependence on technology and questions arise regarding the future of work in societies where such reliance is increasingly preponderant. Because it is undeniably reconfiguring the way people share information and express their will as citizens, is technology hurting global democracy or helping to save it?
